Packet Pickup and In-Person Registration — We will have packet pickup days at the following locations the week before the race. You can also register in person at these times. In addition, you can register in person or pick up your race packet on the morning of the race, beginning at 6:30 AM.

T-shirts –Once again this year, half marathoners and 5K runners/walkers will receive Sport Tec microfiber moisture wicking performance shirts. Half marathoners will receive a blue shirt and 5K runners and walkers will get gray shirts. This technical short-sleeve shirt transfers moisture away from the skin, keeping you dry and comfortable. When considering sizes please note that, unlike cotton, they do not shrink and tend to run about one size bigger than normal. By popular demand, we are offering women’s, men’s, and youth sizing. Although we will try to have enough shirts for all runners, they are not guaranteed and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at packet pickups and on race day.
Entrants in the 5Kolor Run will receive cotton shirts. You’ll like this because the colors will stick better! If you’ve registered for the half marathon or 5K, you can run the 5Kolor Run for free (just show your race bib) but your entry does not include an additional 5Kolor Run shirt. They will be available for purchase on race day, though.
Registered runners (in the half marathon and 5K only) will also get a custom drawstring cinchpak imprinted with the OktobeRun logo!
Teams — You’re encouraged to form teams! You can form a team for any of our events, including the 5Kolor Run. If you’re with a Redwood City school, just select your team from the existing teams (and write us to let us know if you want to be a team captain). Start typing the team name when asked during the registration process, and the team name will drop down. That goes for any other team that’s already been formed. Want to form a new team? Just type your team name when prompted during registration. That will create a team which all your future team members will see when they register. If you’re the first one to create a new team, you’ll automatically be the team captain; let us know if you want to assign someone else.
As an added bonus, if your team has 6 or more members, each team member will receive drink coupons (value $10) for the Oktoberfest! PLEASE NOTE THAT IN ORDER TO TO QUALIFY FOR THIS OFFER, ALL TEAM MEMBERS MUST BE REGISTERED BY THURSDAY, OCTOBER 10.
Woodside Wildcats Prowl– We again welcome the Woodside Wildcats Prowl, courtesy of the Woodside High School Foundation. Runners and walkers in this unique race-within-a-race will register and participate in the OktobeRun just like everyone else, but will receive a Wildcats Prowl T-shirt in lieu of the OktobeRun shirt, and be part of the Woodside High School Team.
To sign up online, just register for OktobeRun as usual. Near the end, it will ask if you’re intending to sign up for the Wildcats Prowl; just say yes.
